For those worried about a brand new take on "Spider-Man" that might not be all that brand new, a new interview for Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man" with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone focuses on their characters and may reveal some of the reboot's biggest changes.
The interview comes courtesy of Yahoo Movies, who sat down with the young stars of Sony's start-over of the wall-crawler. Both had some real deep things to say about their characters, but the idea that clearly emerges from the talks is that this is a much different Peter, and Gwen Stacy is no "Spider-Man-loving" Mary Jane Watson.
Garfield played up the immaturity of his version of Peter Parker, something that didn't necessarily come through in the Sam Raimi films. "He's a kid who's got all these incredible powers," he said. "He's going to mess with them. He's not going to treat them with all that much respect for the time. He's going to push them, and that's what exciting about him."

The interview also features an entertaining bit where Stone admits that she originally thought she was auditioning for Peter's better-known girlfriend. "I didn't know much about Gwen Stacy before I auditioned. I always thought it would be for Mary Jane," she said. "Then I had seen it was for Gwen Stacy and they sent me the sides. I read her story, and I thought it was so beautiful and so tragic."
Even if "The Amazing Spider-Man" is covering familiar ground with the origin story, with the combination of a new love interest and a greater focus on Peter's parents, there just may be enough there to really make the new film stand out.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" opens on July 3.
